I dont understand pesach kitchens in the basement. It's not insanely annoying to carry all your food up and down all pesach?
We do all of our meals in the basement for the week. The main point was so that Mimi could leisurely cook the month before Pesach for 20 people eating for a week, without turning over the main kitchen.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Your kitchen can be kashered in addition. It allows you to start preparing earlier
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Interesting...

I don't think I'd be able to cook in such a small place that most people have sa thier pesach kitchens.

I have seen one that was a small room off then main kitchen, which I think is genius, but you need to have enough room for that.
I'm not who you think I am.

Exactly. Crazy that new shutdowns seemingly happen every year.
I'm enjoying Pesach at home. A basement Pesach kitchen was a small investment compared to these programs.

Nice! Thatís definitely on my list, but right now we need the income from the basement rental. Turning over three days before pesach and cooking everything then can be a challenge, but having a couple of teenage girls who love to pitch in really pulls us through....

That was the last year he did his program there. The next year, one of the people working for him tried to take over, and it was cancelled a couple of days before Pesach

Pathetic, time for a jcw for pesach program frauds.

He should be paying out of pocket from what should have been his profits and even take a loss.

As long as a program doesn't accidently serve Kitniyot, they'll survive.


Video no longer available, but Red Heifer accidently used Kitniyot splenda, and a women started throwing food and plates at the waiters.

Video is circulating on WhatsApp and another one of someone trying to calm her down, while a male (possibly her husband) is agreeing that her behavior is not OK, but it is also not OK to serve him kitniyot.

My guess is that the excessive reaction is related to Sholom Bayis arguments over participating in the program.

However, this fiasco just goes to show what is pretty obvious, that the vast majority of people participating in these programs donít have Kashrus on top of their priority list. Itís more like a checkbox item.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Stop it already! That wasnít the whole story and the woman apparently has emotional issues. Better to look the other way when someone is suffering than to point and jeer.

Why are you jumping to conclusions?

Saying she has emotional issues isnít doing her much of a favor either.

Not sure why you feel the need to throw in your random assumptions about things that are totally inconsequential. Whether this is true or not has absolutely no bearing on anything that we should be discussing on this forum.
